Niko Niko's World Championship Gyro Eating Contest

Greek Gyro Eating Contest

For years, the #1 competitive eater in the world, Joey Chestnut, held a tight grip on the Gyro Eating World Record, but in 2014, someone had his sights set on taking down the champ.  And that he did!

In 2013's competition, Chestnut broke his own world record, eating 22.25 gyro sandwiches in 10 minutes.  But in 2014, the #2 ranked eater in the world, Matt Stonie, came with a plan and walked away with the belt as well as a new world record of 24 gyros in 10 minutes!

Who will take the belt this year?!  Will a new world record be set once again?
